Cesar Hernandez cooled off considerably. Hernandez managed just one hit in 19 at bats with five strikeouts. Peter Bourjos continues to struggle, finishing the week hitting .167 with only one extra-base hit.
First baseman Tommy Joseph also had a rough week, hitting just .077 with five strikeouts. He surrendered many of hits at-bats to Ryan Howard this week, who for some reason is getting more playing time.
Finally, Aaron Altherr had a brutal week at the plate, hitting just .050 with ten strikeouts.
